Power came back on yesterday. When I woke up this morning, the power was still on and the house warm. With the time change, the sun was just coming up through my bedroom window rather than getting up in the dark. I’m thinking of having a Sunday roast chicken dinner with lots of garlic.
I’ve restarted the backup and processing images from the New Mexico trip. One teaser image of Noah’s Ark from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.
My Drobo disk array is telling me that it is nearly full and that I need to add some bigger hard drives. We will see how long this takes, and hope that the power stays on for the upgrade to process. I followed the instructions and did a hot swap of the 2 TB drive with a yellow light with a 3 TB drive. After many, many minutes I finally got a message that the new hard drive was recognized — but it will take ~38 hours for the data protection process to complete. In the mean time I am making other backups. I am looking forward to the Seagate 4 TB hard drives becoming available at a reasonable cost. With these I could double the size of my image database.
